Nada's Italy was a great experience. Very organized; fun "surprises" along the way which were outstanding; The guides were fun and very knowledgeable; Hotels were superb. I loved that we spent several nights in each area and had lots of free time to explore on our own. I would highly recommend Nada's Italy!
This is the only way I want to travel to Europe! I went on Nada's Italian Treasures Tour in 2015 and discovered Rome, Florence, the Tuscan countryside and Venice, with local guides who took care of our small 12-person group in a way that larger groups cannot do! Everything about Nada's small group tours is wonderful, the guides, drivers, tour directors, boutique hotels and restaurants, all of it.....perfezione!
My husband and I chose to join friends at the last minute on their booked trip of Nada's Sole Terra for 11 days. We were those people... we DON'T do tours. We are very independent and have travelled extensively throughout the world. Because of that, we were a little skeptical of being with an organized group and at the mercy of our travel guide's personality and direction. In the end, I would have to say, this was one of the most delightful and special trips we've ever taken. The group was small, our tour guide personable, attentive, patient and energetic. There were options every day to make personal choices. The small family restaurants were amazing. Each boutique hotel and inn became more and more incredible as the trip played out. We met real people, ate real food and enjoyed incredible time with like minded people. We already have in mind our next Nada's tour. She is the real deal and has curated a very special tour operation that we highly recommend.
Italy was beautiful. Our guide was fantastic, as were our drivers. Best way to experience a foreign country.
I was excited and looking forward to Nada's Dolci Vita tour. After returning and reliving the 10 days I can say the tour exceeded all expectations. Allessandro, Leonardo, and Roberto made the entire trip easy and with them, we saw the specials things you may overlook on your own...
